VSA arts Invites Entries From Young Artists With Disabilities for Green Light Awards

"Sponsored by VSA arts with support from Volkswagen of America, Inc., the Green Light Awards program is open to young artists ages 16 to 25 living in the United States who have a physical, cognitive, or mental disability. A disability is defined as an impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.

The program invites entries of both representational and abstract work. Artwork may illustrate actual aspects of what signals the artist's creative motivations such as the physical world or personal discoveries. Abstract work that relates to feelings or emotions is also encouraged. Work might also reflect the artist's experience of living with a disability and its role in shaping or transforming their work.

Art must be an original work that has been completed in the last three years. Eligible media include paintings and drawings (oil, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, or charcoal), fine art prints (lithographs, etching, intaglio, or woodcuts), photography, computer-generated prints and two-dimensional mixed media. This year the program also welcomes entries of sculpture and time-based media (video, film, etc.).

The program will award one Grand Prize of $20,000, one First Award of $10,000, one Second Award of $6,000, and twelve Awards of Excellence of $2,000 each." Deadline: July 11, 2008.
